A drunk man needed to be rescued after getting trapped in a bin truck full of rubbish.
The unnamed man had to be freed by police after getting stuck inside the lorry's waste compartment outside a McDonald's restaurant in the US.
It is understood he climbed a ladder on to the vehicle's side and dived in before getting lodged inside with the refuse.
Officers in Oklahoma revealed the victim could not remember how he got there – or even who he was, the Mirror reports.
Detailing the unusual incident in a post on Facebook, Enid Police Department said officers responded to reports of a drunken man becoming lodged inside a bin lorry on Monday.
Police rushed to the scene at the Oklahoma McDonald's at about 4.45am.
The truck driver said that the man, who has not been named, had climbed up on to the side before leaping in.
The back half of the lorry was said to be full and could not be opened without "endangering the man inside," according to reports.
Police said: "Officers spoke with the man, who would not identify himself or explain how or why he was inside the back of the trash truck.
"So, we did what anyone else would do: We called our neighbours at the Enid Fire Department and asked to borrow a ladder."
Bemused officers then lowered the ladder into the bin lorry and the hapless man was freed, before being taken in custody.
Officers added that the man was later processed as "John Doe" on complaints of "public intoxication and obstruction".
A complaint of bringing contraband into the jail was later added, police said, when some marijuana was found inside his sock.
Police said: "Somewhere in all of this is a lesson to be learned about getting too trashed."
